Member Forums Helping You Influence

Member Forums

The purpose of these groups is to influence key local, regional, and national policymakers, with the Chamber keen that its members engage on the issues causing them most concern.

Open to all Chamber members, these meetings are held on quarterly basis in each of the three counties to direct the Chamber's lobbying and campaigning activities and to allow businesses to interface with strategic organisations on key topical issues both locally and regionally.

Issues discussed can be emerging, short-term or long-standing issues, such as  public sector procurement, internet broadband connectivity, skills deficiencies, a high-speed rail connection for the East Midlands and minimising the burdensome effect on red tape on business.

This is also an opportunity for the Chamber to share the findings from the most recent Quarterly Economic Survey (QES)
